I will say that exposure has done a great deal of good in getting people to accept snakes. People come over to my house and will usually come over multiple times before they notice the tank set up in my tank room with the fish. Over a period of time, after the initial freak out that there is a SNAKE!, they start watching him through the glass, watching me hold him, feed him, clean his tank out, etc, and eventually ask to touch him, or even hold him. It's a gratifying experience, actually. I have found that as long as you let people take it at their own speed, they eventually come to deal with -- if not admire -- reptiles.

I agree wholeheartedly! My best friend loves snakes and she helped me to overcome my initial insecurities and we even got a friend who hates them to hold one. :) It was a big step in the right direction!

That's awesome! I want to get a snake one day. When I was younger I would catch snakes and try to get my mom to let me keep them. LOL good snake memories.

Snakes are awesome!!! I have two cornsnakes. One arnery and one an albino snow.

When I was younger I didn't really know much about snakes, and this person was hanging outside with their gigantic constrictor! (I think it was atleast) I think they put it on me and I just stood there nervous but I learned that they aren't violent creatures, it was awesome.

I also have a tarantula too haha :) her name is Roxanne.
